How does she do it?
|Dan Stevens, Daphne Neville and Dominic Cooper |
on location during the filming of 'Summer in February'
The new movie 'Summer in February' opens with a scene on a Cornish cliff top that features my mother as a bird-watcher. She tells me that she looks just like Granny on screen.
'Summer in February', which opens in London cinemas today, stars Dominic Cooper as the turn-of-the-century artist AJ Munnings, Emily Browning as Florence Carter-Wood his wife and Dan Stevens as Gilbert Evans.
The film is beautifully photographed by Andrew Dunn, who funnily enough was the lighting cameraman when I worked on the crew of the BBC drama serial 'My Family and Other Animals' made on location in Corfu. He had a house near ours in the Cotswolds and knows all about my mother's kitchen.
'Dominic Cooper is horrid,' she declared.
'Really horrid? Horrid in real life?'
'Oh, no. Horrid as the character. In real life he couldn't be sweeter. He has a lovely smile.'
You won't see Mum on the trailer but it is beautiful ~
